    I like the ones with the two zippered pouches. Invacare and Tilite both have them. I have my phone, wallet and pens etc. in the front. IC and colost. supplies in the rear. No searching around if in a hurry.

      Funklab, it seems as though we are on the same page....I have been trying to put together an everyday carry bag for my wheelchair and decided to post this tread in order to get some ideas. I also carry a travelers notebook and fountain pen i love both and use them all of the time. I have a foldable small backpack that I can add to my under chair bag in case I am out shopping. Thanks for that idea. I carry a leatherman tool that not only has a knife but also screwdriver and hex keys. Of course i must have my iphone and airpods at all times. Do you carry anything in the event you drop something? Like a telstik or something?

          "Sorry" thought throw my 2 cents...
          I use to keep a folding reacher attached in reach with velcro. Since then my wife and I hardly ever out separately so we keep a folding reacher in her backpack so I just retrieve it when we need to use it. Especially comes in handy in getting things off shelves at stores, too.
          Looks kinda like this one:

It reacted poorly in a cheap celluloid pen and clotted up the whole thing, but in a decent pen it's wonderful. I'm running Noodler's Antietam "blood" ink in a Lamy All-Star in my EDC right now.)
            Nice. I love Baystate Blue, it's such a vibrant color, doesn't like cheap paper much, but that's okay, and I love how permanent it is. I like the color of Noodler's Cactus Fruit (a purplish pink) better than BB, but with my notebook being kept where it is, sometimes it gets a couple drops of rain on it while transferring in or out of the car. The Cactus Fruit ink runs like crazy and will just wash off of the page, but Baystate Blue stays put like a champ, which is why I keep coming back to it.

            I don't carry anything to reach stuff, but I'm pretty long limbed and I can pick stuff up off the ground without getting out of my wheelchair without much problem.

                If you use a seat belt on your wheelchair these are great. I have two and when I am out and about with my phone in my lap I don't have to worry about dropping it....

                  I'm a minimalist. I carry my wallet, phone, keys and hydrophilic catheters (1-4 depending on the time I am out) down my boot and up my pant sleeve.

                    Buy a nylon or lether purse.

                    I never buy a wheelchair manufacturer's under seat pouch. I go to Penny's and buy a nylon or leather purse which sell for $20 and tie wrap it to my chair. They last a very long time.

                    I carry my keys, cellphone, ink pen and Sharpie marker in the open pocket. In the zippered pocket wallet, thermometer, meds, wire cutters, pressure gauge, calculator, and tape measure.

                    In my wallet I have a folded sheet of paper with complete family history, date of birth/death, age at death, cause of death, address, telephone numbers and place of employment for all sibling. For me a completed medical history, meds on and dosage, drug allergic reactions, date of operations and what kind of operation. My primary medical doctor name address and telephone number to all other doctors. In case of emergency contact numbers. My complete medical diagnosis and complete details about AD. Date of injury. I date this document for any changes.

                      Hospital bed, 3 shifts of private duty nurses, ambulance trailing behind. Oh, this was a serious thread, sorry...here it goes:

                      Wallet, Keys, Phone, Vape pen, Lanyard with various RFID access cards, small fanny pack containing many of listed items and anywhere from 2 to 6 closed system kits (with gloves and disinfectant removed for compactness), zip lock bag with wipes (ripped in 4/1 ratio for compactness), metal clip to hold pants down. And that's it. And a small Little Playmate cooler if I'm bringing lunch to work (also can cram fannypack in there)

                        Suction machine, suction catheters, 2x spare tracheostomy tube, sterile gloves, trache hole forceps, spare ventilator, spare battery, disposable urine bottle, allen keys, phone which has notes/credit cards and 1 or 2 support workers, have to have 2 if in the van as the driver can't always pull up and get to me if a vent pipe pops off. Don't carry anything myself, support workers do that

                          After years of carrying everything in a backpack I ditched it. I hurt my shoulder trying to zip it up while it was on the back of my wheelchair. Kinda the straw that broke the camel's back, then had 3 months of PT and decided to go rogue and not use a backpack.
                          I use an under-seat pouch for wallet, phone charger, a few hex keys, tape measure (useful when shopping, etc.), pulse/oximeter (breathing issues), and small fold up utility tool that has a scissors.
                          On right vertical front post of wheelchair I attached an iPhone holster. I must carry an oxygen tank on the left vertical post and a small bag containing back up batteries for the tank device, a pen and plastic wrench for opening and closing tank.
                          You wouldn't believe what I used to carry in my backpack - set up as if I would be stranded in a forest.
                          Thanks for the thread and good ideas!

                                For those of you saying you have a multitool with hex keys and screwdrivers, where did you find this? Sounds like an easy solution to carrying around unnecessary hex keys everywhere.
